Taking Aim...

Take Back the 2nd!

Because it doesn't say, "Unless the government decides that you don't need it!"

I’m mad as hell & I hope you are too!

I have been reading a lot lately, as I’m sure many of you have about the gun grabbing attempts on both the local level (CA AB1014) as well as the Federal level (no fly/no guns, among many others). Now, I don’t know your temperament, your pain threshold, but I’m fed up! Our rights are being stripped away right under our noses, all in the name of safety. Ironically, I have never felt less safe in regards to our own government!

The government is making decisions that are “for the greater good”, but the only ones benefiting from their decisions are themselves and their cronies! They are setting up a system of controls where your rights are no longer rights but privileges to be given and taken away on a whim by the supreme leader!

The Federal government has become too bloated and powerful. It holds powers that the Founding Fathers never intended it to have. In fact they created checks and balances to keep this sort of thing from happening! So what happened? NOTHING! Every time politicians overstepped their bounds, nothing happened.

Get caught lying: sit in the “hot seat”, feign ignorance, create a distraction, and wait for the next news cycle. BOOM problem solved! When did this become SOP for the Federal government? How did they become more powerful then We the People?

Since when is the President able to simply go against our wishes and force his will on us? If he doesn’t get his way he acts like a selfish child and goes around Congress and creates executive orders to do whatever he wants! Even worse than that is the fact that NO ONE in Congress does a damn thing about it!

This, my fellow patriots is what we’ve all been talking about. Obviously talking isn’t working! The liberals don’t care about your rights except to take them away. Are we going to continue to sit around and complain about it on Facebook? Or is it time to take a stand, actually stand up, and decide to do something?

Please don’t like this post if that’s all you’re willing to do. I’m not writing this to get a lot of likes. I’m writing this post to see who’s willing to unite with fellow gun owners and make a difference! We have been vilified long enough! I for one am tired of being blamed for the actions of a few whack-jobs or local terrorists.

We’re asking you to comment on what & where you’re willing to take a stand! Is it in front of the local sheriff’s office? Is it a road trip to Sacramento to openly protest the do-nothing politicians who are allowing or supporting the stripping away of our rights? You tell us, what are you willing to do to defend your basic rights?

We’re asking you all to share this post, along with your own personal feelings on the subject. Tell us, tell everyone how you feel! Tell us you’re mad! If you’re not mad, then you are part of the problem. I’m mad! I personally have been told by a local “NRA guy” to “NOT protest, to not make a scene because it will end up benefiting the gun grabbers unless we get 250,000 people to show up…” Well I may not know the political games that they play in the state and Federal level, but I know that I am fed up with being a part of the group that always loses! Always gives up our rights!

I don’t have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It’s a depression. Everybody’s out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel’s worth; banks are going bust; shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter; punks are running wild in the street & universities , and there’s nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there’s no end to it.

We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat. And we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that’s the way it’s supposed to be!

We all know things are bad — worse than bad — they’re crazy.

It’s like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don’t go out any more. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we’re living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, “Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my internet, and I won’t say anything. Just leave us alone.”

Well, I’m not going to leave you alone.

 “I want you to get mad! I don’t want you to protest. I don’t want you to riot. I don’t want you to write to your Congressman, because I wouldn’t know what to tell you to write. I don’t know what to do about the gun grabbers, the liberals and ISIS and the crime in the street.

All I know is that first, you’ve got to get mad. You’ve gotta say, “I’m a human being, goddammit! My life has value!”

So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window, open it, and stick your head out and yell, “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!!”

I’m amazed at how little I had to change from that famous rant of forty years ago. But, don’t yell out your window, your neighbors will probably call the cops and tell them that you’re a danger to yourself and others… Instead, go to the NRA, the CRPA, the GOA, whoever you ally yourself with and tell them how mad you are! Ask them what they are doing to make a difference in this mess! More importantly ask them how you can help!

Yes, you actually have to get involved. No more sitting on the sidelines, waiting to be told what to be offended by. No more waiting for the talking heads on the nightly news to tell you about your rights being taken away “for your own good”! It’s time to be on the nightly news! It’s time to take a stand, and take our country back! It’s time to make America an object of pride, not embarrassment.

If you don’t belong to any gun rights group shame on you! We need leadership & direction. We need organization & focus. Most are fairly inexpensive to join and have the mechanisms in place to make an impact. But they can’t do it alone, you have to step up and do your part. Freedom is never free!

If you are part of the NRA, search for your local Member’s Council. They hold monthly meetings you can attend to hear what’s being done in your community. I plan on attending the next MC meeting in my area & I urge you to as well.

Bottom line is, we don’t have the answers, but we need to start asking questions and demanding answers. We need to find who will hold our representatives’ feet to the fire! We also need to be willing to get in there and stoke the flames when needed. What are you willing to do?

 

 

Stand up, do your part & GOD bless America!

 

 

The Liberals Are Coming…

happiness is a warm gun mug

This morning I was minding my own business, drinking my coffee out of my new gun mug (Thank you Sabrina!) perusing the internet when I was assaulted by an offensive headline that read: Hillary Clinton’s 25% Gun Tax! *HC

That is why we as pro-2A people need to get the word out there! We need to make sure that we pull the fence sitters off on our side. They don’t have to like, shoot or even own a gun but everyone needs to understand that “The Liberals are coming!” after our rights! Today it’s gun rights; tomorrow it’s our freedom of speech, or our right to a trial by our peers! Insert whatever right that you hold dear, they are all on the chopping block once the overlords start making decisions for us! This once great country was founded on our freedom!

As soon as we allow (either by voting for them or even just by doing nothing) politicians to modify or straight up take away even one of our rights we’ve set precedence for the government to decide what is best for us. Do you want Big Brother deciding how many bullets you can buy in a given period? Do you want BB saying that “they” know better than you what’s best for your children?

Starting January 1, in California if anyone in your family reports you as “a threat to yourself or others”, the police can confiscate your weapons for 21 days without you ever being questioned. *CA. I’m grateful that my wife is very stable & pro-gun!

New York has already tried to decide whether or not you should be allowed to order that large soda. Now they’ve set their sights on how many bullets you should be trusted with! State Senator Roxanne Persaud (D-19) and Assemblywoman Jo Anne Simon (D-52) want to pass a law that would limit ammo purchases to twice the capacity of the firearm during a 90-day period (3 months)! *NY

I know, “That’s in New York, it doesn’t affect me…”  Or “Those crazy CA laws would never fly in my state…” New York and California are becoming watershed states when it comes to gun laws. To paraphrase Frank, “If Libs can… pass it there, they’ll pass it … anywhere…” That’s why it’s so damned important to vote in every election! Get informed, be heard, & make a difference!

I do realize that my rants lately have been voter related, but until we take to the streets in civil disobedience, demanding our Second Amendment rights we have to hit them where it hurts most, in the ballot box. I urge you to talk to your conservative & moderate friends about protecting their rights. Talk to your liberal friends, if you have any, at your own risk…
Take a stand & GOD bless America! #takebackthe2nd

VOTE!

vote

THIS, ladies and gentlemen is WHY we can’t have nice things! People so often don’t vote because “It won’t matter…” “They already know who’s gonna win…” “I don’t have a dog in this fight…” You NEED to get out and vote, make sure your range buddy votes, make sure your carpool members vote (depending on their slant anyway…), make sure that anybody that agrees with your way of thinking votes! It is our duty to make sure that every conservative American votes in every election!

If you don’t vote, then you are not allowed to whine, complain or even post any “anti-their guy” memes. You give up that right when you don’t vote. Sadly, that’s not the only right that you stand to lose by not voting. The liberal Democrats have made it very clear what will be in their cross-hairs if they win. The 2nd Amendment will likely be drastically changed if they retain the White House. If you won’t vote, then I doubt that you will actually take a stand if they come for your guns. The time to take a stand is now! Take the fight to them, don’t wait for it to come to your yard.

Do we have the perfect pool of nominees to choose from? Hell no! But we need to play the hand that’s dealt us. We need to be in contact with our local, state & Federal representatives, to remind them that they work for us! I know that that’s not always an easy thing to do, most of my Reps are Democrats but I still send them emails explaining how I feel about any given situation. Do they care? Probably not, did I do my due diligence, yes. I also found a state Senator that is very pro-gun and I have made a point of staying in his peripheral.

I believe that education is a direction that our group will gravitate towards because education is a cornerstone to any movement. Gun education, voter education and Constitutional education are three areas that are desperately underserved. Especially in the universities and colleges where liberal professors teach young Americans to be entitled, offended and afraid of loud noises. If you have knowledge in one of those areas, PLEASE contact us! We are still in the developmental stages and could use some guidance and volunteers.

Lastly, if you agree with any of our posts please comment and let us know. If you disagree with any of our posts, let us know! We aren’t here merely to entertain you but to elicit thought and discussion. Through interaction we all learn from each other.

 

Thank you for your time & GOD bless America!

Which rights should the government allow us to have?

This was written in response to a Facebook post by terrified liberal DEMANDING extreme gun control now!

 

I’m tired of the leftist elite, Hollywood stars and politicians screaming for gun control while hiding behind armed guards. Why are their lives more important then the rest of us?

If you choose to be unarmed subjects then go right ahead and sign on the dotted line, giving up your Second Amendment rights. While you’re at it, let’s allow the government to choose what other rights you don’t need.

I. After all, if the government decides for you what religion you should follow then there won’t be any need for religious arguments. They’ll take care of the news media too, only allowing “proper” news.

II. You’ve already agreed that “we the people” don’t need guns to keep us safe, the government will do that.

III. If the government decides that they need to house soldiers or otherwise commandeer your belongings, it’s probably for the best.

IV. If the police don’t have to have probable cause to search your house then they can make sure that you’re safe, even from yourself. You might possess something not “state approved”.

V. Let’s allow the courts to decide how many times you can be tried for a crime and force you to incriminate yourself. They can also decide that your personal property would better off used by the state, after all they know best.

VI. Perhaps if the government decides that you’ve committed a crime they may need to incarcerate you for an extended period of time so they can build a case against you. It would probably make someone uncomfortable if they had to face you in court to accuse you of a crime so let’s keep them private.

VII. Let’s face it, jury duty can be such a hassle, so the government can decide your guilt or innocence from here on out.

VIII. If the government thinks you’re guilty, you probably are so take your punishment like a good subject.

IX. If they aren’t spelled out then I guess no other rights exist…

X. And lastly, let’s allow the federal government to decide what powers it should ultimately wield. Again, they know what’s best for us!

Would that make you all feel warm and safe? Who needs all of these rights anyhow? Way too much thinking and decision making for us, let’s let THEM decide what rights they will GIVE us… Mind that slope, it’s kinda slippery.
